Volvo Cars reveals sporty S90 and V90 R-Design models
Volvo Cars has revealed performance-inspired R-Design models of the new S90 saloon and V90 estate.
Central to the S90 and V90 R-Design is an advanced sport chassis that delivers an energetic, road-hugging drive.
“R-Design delivers an edge to our elegant estate and saloon models in our 90 Series, with a winning combination of a sportier, more responsive drive with clearly visible performance styling,” said Björn Annwall, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars.
Sporting a new front-end design with spoiler-integrated foglights, the R-Design models come with a unique grille and piano black trim both on the front and rear of the cars. A new five-spoke matt black diamond-cut wheel adds to the performance feel.
A wide range of styling cues are included on the inside – from unique deco trim, pedals and mats, to the sporty contour seats and special steering wheel, including a high-level interior illumination package that radiates attention to detail.
Order books are now open for the S90 and V90 R-Design models. UK prices will be announced in Q3 2016.
